American singer Judy Collins, one of the most renowned voices to come out of the 1960s folk music era, sings a whaling song, with backing by the sounds of the Humpback whales. This song was written by George Scrogie, a miller at Fedderate, New Deer, in the early 1850s. Tarwathie is a farm in the lap of Mormond Hill, near the village of Strichen, and the song tells the story of a lad who left there to seek his fortune in whaling.

"Farewell to Tarwathie, adieu Mormond Hill
And the dear land of Crimond, I bid you farewell
I'm bound out for Greenland and ready to sail
In hopes to find riches in hunting the whale."
